Senior living complex planned for Brookings

Sea View Senior Living Community
Former Brookings residents Robert and Theresa Dunn will be back in town June 15 to break ground on a new senior living development, Sea View Senior Living Community, to be located at Highway 101 and Gerlach Lane in Harbor.

The Dunns, as owners of Firstmark, Inc., have been involved with 27 senior living developments throughout Washington, Oregon, and California. They are coming full circle back to Brookings, where in 1995 they built Macklyn House, their first senior living development.

Plans being designed in coordination with senior housing architect John Lape are for a 110,000 square foot building that will provide a broad range of housing options, including studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, with dining rooms, beauty salon, laundry facilities, plus social and activity areas.

Anticipated employment opportunities when the facility is fully occupied is to generate  more than 60 jobs with an estimated annual payroll of $1.2 million.

Robert Dunn said, “Of course we look forward to teaming up with Chetco Federal Credit Union, as they will be providing the project funding.”

He added, “We look forward to bringing this state of the art community to Brookings-Harbor. We believe Sea View Senior Living will be a wonderful opportunity to enhance the lives of Southern Oregon seniors and help stimulate the local Curry County economy.”

More details about the project will be made available following the groundbreaking next Monday.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
